best yoga video ever

A Western Woman returns the practice to its source: Mysore, India—and is made to open further by this “mecca of Yoga.”

Last month’s “Best Yoga Video Ever.”

Love this. Love the mix (sparks fly) of East and West, of tradition returning anew, of young and old, of heart connecting between cultures and practices. Love the cinematography—I want to work with you—love the music, and love the end, when Ms. Cruz reminds us that though she may call this a performance, it’s still a simple practice.

    Hi, Waylon, I really like Elephant, i became a fan after living in Boulder for one month taking Richard and Mary´s Teacher Training. Thanks for supporting the practice! we had fun doing the videos. India is full of surprises and love. I sent an article to Elephant to give some context, also with the second video that we shoot in the market. Alessandro is truly gifted, not only in his art but as a human being. That´s the yoga. Namasté!

    Guess we should all reread and meditate on Guy Debord "The Society of the Spectacle"……
